Tiny Foxes

Isn't he cute?

Fennec Foxes are the world's smallest foxes weighing a maximum weight of about 2 to 3 pounds. Fennec Foxes are also known as Desert Foxes since they live in the arid sandy deserts of north Africa. Being desert dwellers, they are sand colored with black tipped tails, and their most noticable characteristic is their large ears which are used for diffusing heat in the daytime and for hunting at night.
